WWE NXT results: Corey Graves says goodbye to NXT

The Big News: It was Corey Graves' last night so they aired a lengthy tribute video to him.

The Medium News: Tyler Bate made his first appearance since the UK Championship tournament and defeated Oney Lorcan.

The Little Beaver-sized News: Kassius Ohno returned in a backstage segment, consoling Shinsuke Nakamura after Nakamura lost the title.

*******

The show started with a video recapping NXT TakeOver: San Antonio. As I mentioned on Saturday, this show greatly exceeded expectations and I would make sure to check it out if you haven't already.

*******

Corey Graves is still on the show. I know this was taped before TakeOver, but they did imply that Nigel McGuinness would be taking over this week.

Ember Moon defeated Aliyah

Aliyah is seemingly an unknown babyface. She got almost no reaction coming out except for a few people booing who assumed she was a heel.

Moon used an abdominal stretch where she pushed Aliyah's head down further, to the point that her body was completely bent over. Aliyah got some offense, just enough to show that she is far from ready for a bigger role. Moon walked up the ropes with a moonsault press for a two count and then finished off Aliyah with The Eclipse.

*******

We got an Eric Young promo from after TakeOver. Then they showed Tye Dillinger in the Royal Rumble and him being excited about taking part. They also had a post-match promo where he said that the whole experience was surreal.

*******

That brought us to the Asuka video package. Asuka said her match was tough, but she is still champion. Asuka laughed about Ember Moon challenging her, asking if Moon actually works here.

*******

Ember Moon cut a promo after being told what Asuka said about her. The interviewer recited the question in record speed. Moon said she is happy Asuka won because she wanted to be the one to dethrone her and Asuka will know who Ember Moon is.

WWE United Kingdom Champion Tyler Bate defeated Oney Lorcan

Bate walked to the ring waving to everyone. This was a solid match that the crowd got into. Bate used the airplane spin and then the Tyler Driver '97 for the win. Bate did the same thing he did in the UK tournament where he did the spin, stopped and teased being too dizzy, and then continued for a few more rotations.

*******

Roderick Strong cut a post-TakeOver promo, saying beating Andrade "Cien" Almas was a statement and he is continuing his quest to be NXT Champion.

*******

We move to the NXT Tag Team Championship match from Saturday. Paul Ellering, after the match, said they are the new sheriff, the new law, they will show no mercy and take victory at all costs.

*******

Then we got the recap of the NXT title match. We got footage of after the show went off the air where Shinsuke Nakamura was helped to the back and treated by the trainers. Chris Hero/Kassius Ohno made his return on TV, telling Nakamura that the situation really sucks.

Bobby Roode was elsewhere and offended that he would be asked if he still would've won if Nakamura hadn't been injured. Roode said that when he debuted he said this was his NXT and now the Bobby Roode era has begun. Of course, he finished by saying his title reign would be glorious.

*******

Next week will be Bobby Roode's glorious celebration.

*******

Tom Phillips wished good luck to Corey Graves, since tonight is his last night on commentary in NXT. We got a lengthy video package covering Graves' career, from in the ring and then to the broadcast booth.

This was a really good video package. It's available to watch below:

No Way Jose defeated Elias Samson

Graves spent minutes flipping out that the last match he was calling featured The Drifter. As always, Samson got the go away heat from people not wanting to hear his song.

Samson ran across the ring with a dropkick at the start of the match, but Jose took over quickly. Graves was suddenly thrilled with leaving Samson, Tom Phillips, and Percy Watson behind when he was reminded that he still had to deal with Byron Saxton.

Samson finally got the heat when he crotched Jose on the top rope. Jose made his comeback, hitting chops and won with the pop-up punch to the face.

So that does it for this week. Thank you all so much for reading and until next week, remember to say your vitamins and take your prayers!
